My partner (female) and I (male) are looking at taking the overnight train from Budapest to Krakow in late September.
Using the Hungarian Rail website, there's definitely a service on that date. However, when I select "own compartment" it says no service available. It works fine without "own compartment" selected but we don't want to be split up for the night into separate male/female compartments. I've tried different dates, including much closer ones, and nothing seems to work.
If I select 3 people the "own compartment" option works fine. I'm happy (enough) to spend the extra money buying a ticket that won't be used, to ensure we get our own compartment. Is this a bad idea? Or could it just be the website playing up right now? I'm sure it's worked in the past fine.
